Yahoo! has announced an update to its image search results. An idea previously implemented by rival Google and search partner Bing, Yahoo! search now features an infinite scroll, according to an article published by Search Engine Results.

Users will also be able to share any image that catches their attention via both Facebook and Twitter, as part of the update.

Infinite scrolling has become a common feature in image searching but has not yet made the transition to standard search results – though it has been rumoured and could have a potentially massive impact on SEO.

Rather than featuring pages of results, infinite scrolling – as it suggests – simply allows users to scroll down the page.

Yahoo! has also revealed that other features in image search will remain as they are when the users is scrolling down the page.

Although a positive move by Yahoo!, the move has widely been considered as being implemented too late.

Bing have had the feature in place since 2009, whilst Google implemented the feature into their own image search function last year.
